you think -- host: next call is richmond, virginia. go ahead. caller: what does your guest think china's preference would be? what would china like to see happen? guest: they have been relatively quiet. they are hesitant to press north korea. they see that as an internal development. china's greater concern is north korea's behavior. they continue to play like north korea's lawyer in the u.n. council. they are trying to be on both sides of the fence at the same time. they are trying to say they are behaving as a responsibly stake holder at the same time, they undermine the affect of the u.n. sanctions to get north korea to abide by the sanctions and give up weapons. host: north texas on the republican line. caller: good morning. they had a nuclear test in some cave up north. are they really a nreally a power? guest: they did have an unsuccessful test but they have unsuccessful test but they have had a successful test. we know they are able to test a device. there's uncertainty to the degree to which they've weaponized. most don't think they have miniaturized any warhead so it wo

, some people say, rode in on the obama wave. the virginia 5th district is conservative leaning and mccain won it with 50.6% of the vote. it is traditionally a republican stronghold and has become somewhat less so. and it is represented by a democrat. >> virginia's 5th district is the size of new jersey and it is a triangle shape with the sharltsville region, home to the university of virginia and thomas jefferson's home down to the south side of virginia, north carolina border that includes the city of martinsville, danville and part of lynchburg. the economy has hit the district hard. their unemployment tops 20%. it's bad, but not quite as bad as elsewhere in the district. there is unemployment continues to be a problem throughout the district. there have been a number of foreclosures, obviously like everywhere. people who have their jobs, their pay has stagnated for the last few years. so it's certainly a big problem here. tom perriello is a moderate democrat. whereas on some of the big ticket priorities on president obama and the democrats, he voted in favor of health care r

and everything will trickle down. >> the candidates running in the virginia race are tom periello freshman democrat, elected in a wave of victories during obama's victory in 2008, and against him is challenger robert -- republican state senator from chatham, the seventh part of the district, and jeff parker, tea party member and independent businessman from the danville area. this race is getting a lot of national attention because republicans see periello as one of the most vulnerable democrats in congress, he represents a somewhat conservative district and he voted in favor of obama's major initiatives -- health care, capt. trade, stimulus, so on. and two years ago he was elected by the smallest margin of any congressional race in the country. they think -- the republicans are seeing this as a pickup but democrats, however, say tom perriello is a fighter, very tough campaigner and because he supported the same initiatives that he is getting support of national democrats just like national republicans are trying to taken down. in 2008, perriello, a young lawyer from charlottesville, he ch
on to virginia. republican line. good morning. caller: yes. we have where i live at we have three pen ten sharies here and there's over a thousand inmates there. and the state -- the tax people pay i hear anywhere from $16,000 to $25,000 a year. and that's not right for us to pay that kind of money for -- to how's those inmates. host: how many jobs do you think those three produce for that area? caller: very few. host: whether or not do you say that? caller: because it's a low income county and stuff. the only thing that keeps our county going is the coal mines and stuff. host: ok. did you have more to add? caller: i would just like, like i said, $25,000 that taxpayers pay to keep the inmate in jail. and just like i said, they need to get those inmates out and bring our soldiers back home from afghanistan and train those prisoners over there for two or three weeks and send them over there. host: according to the national public radio, in 2006 the it cost about $68 billion for corrections. the average cost per state inmate was $22,000 or about $62 per day among facilities operated by the federal b
one -- virginia and maryland. then you have democrats that face tougher calls. chett edwards faces a tough race. these are members represent conservative districts. this may not be the year for them to save their seats. host: what will be the game plan for the white house to save the majority in the house? guest: to be very cold-blooded in their a look and where they need to invest in these races. decide where their money can make a difference. host: will the president be campaigning for individual candidates? will he stay clear and fund- raiser for them instead? what will he do? guest: i think you'll see president obama heading up the new york checkbox pretty soon. he will head up the los angeles checkbox. -- checkbooks. many of the conservative democrats -- and democrats in conservative districts, do not want to have the present campaign for them. the individualize their races. the distance themselves from the national party. host: the first lady is going to spend some of her political capital and carefully stepped into the campaign season. where do you expect to see her? guest:
and like the gentleman in west virginia. that would be negative. the gentleman in kentucky that is not here visiting, the democrats do not have to pray that it will be 1994 and more because it will be more of the depression we were headed for. was it enough? host: can i ask you, how is the senate race looking in pennsylvania? at the plant to vote? caller: i think the republicans are in for a big surprise. the callers wanted to know why your show lanes towards the democrats. it does not. i think it is buried there. you do not have republicans calling in. i think there are some republicans out there like myself. we have seen what they had done to this country. eight years was enough. host: the financial times says the attention is turning to al mr. obama will turn towards divided government. the parallel is when it did gingrich seized control. his party had been in the minority for the previous four years and over reached. he deprived the government of day today funding. the public blamed the republicans for the shutdown. the president regained the initiative and was reelected one year later.
, wisconsin, the state of iowa, and virginia. key battleground states that he won in 2008 and the president using backyard chats at one stop at least in the state of iowa. a college rally tonight in madison, wisconsin. we'll debate that in moments with our panel coming up here. martha: all right, well speaking of those battleground states we have new fox polls out there that show to the president and his fellow democrats have a pretty tough road ahead at least at this point 35 days out when it comes to holding the key senate seats in particular. the trend is threatening their hold on that chamber. molly is live in washington with more on this. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. let's look at three of the states that are very important to the white house and the democrats in order to keep a majority in the senate. president obama will be in wisconsin at a democratic rally to try to help russ feingold. although he will not be here. our latest poll shows that russ feingold is trailing russ johnson who owns a plastic company. feingold has 44%, johnston 52%. feingold is a three-term
. >> lehrer: finally tonight, hurricane earl. north carolina, virginia, and maryland declared emergencies today, as the hurricane approached with winds of 135 miles an hour. the big storm, seen from the international space station, was still 700 miles off cape hatteras, north carolina, late today, but evacuations were under way along the exposed outer banks. >> when they said they wanted the visitors to leave today from hatteras, we decided the best thing to do for the locals is get out of the way. >> lehrer: the state's beaches were already empty, buildings were being boarded up, and some people worried they were overdue for disaster. >> people feel it's time for the big one. >> lehrer: forecasters still expected early to turn north as it reaches the outer banks late tomorrow or early friday. the projected track then takes it parallel up the coast. as a result, the national hurricane center issued a hurricane warning for most of the north carolina coast and a hurricane watch extended to delaware. the coast guard again flyovers along the eastern seaboard warning shimz at sea of the coming
. >> reporter: in west virginia's rural first district, this republican ad never even mentions the democratic opponent. >> -- had enough of record job loss, enough of barack obama and nancy pelosi? enough of the attacks on west virginia jobs? if you've had enough, david mckinley for congress. >> of course this is a total role reversal from 2006 and 2008 because then it was a referendum on president bush and the war in iraq. now it's a referendum on president obama, democratic leaders, and the economy. you are seeing democrats are doing and republicans are doing what the opposite party did just a few years ago. >> it was fascinating when you brought up the point that he never even mentioned his opponent in that ad. it was just obama and pelosi. the president today talked about policies that move us forward. is anybody talking about that, the democrats? >> this is what's interesting. this is what evan tracy pointed out. the health care bill, for instance, has been so difficult for democrats to sell and most of them are not talking about it. they're not talking about it in ads for sure. and so w
in their lives. 78.4% of adults identify themselves as christian, down from 86.4% in 1990. virginia. chris, independent line. caller: thanks. i am a second time a caller. i have been listening to this program for years. hard to actually get on the air. so i am appreciative were glad to be on. anyway, as far as the core competencies, we are a large and powerful country, over 300 million people. one of the largest countries in the world in terms of population. and it is not just population. we are a very affluent country compared to other countries in the world, which is probably obvious to anyone listening. so, i think we should not just focus on having one core competence a. i kind of got in at the tail end of the discussion, but i gather we are talking about economic. but we shall not focus on any one core competency. we should focus on having that diverse economy. whether you are talking about manufacturing, services, or what ever. in some parts of the country, although some sectors in this economy are kind of doing poorly right now, other sectors are doing well. some of your localities
. alexandria, virginia. democrats line. you are on. go ahead, please. ellis, speak up or we have to move on. caller: i am speaking up. host: what do you have to say? caller: nobody should be too big to fail. host: de have anything more to add? caller: the reason i think these people should be allowed to fail is because already the government has already bailed them out. and at this point, we are still working on bailing them out, yet they don't seem to be helping anybody else out here in this economy right now. and they are actively lobbying right now in congress to try to get to -- republicans get back to office. part of this deal. it is all partisan. and it is all about politics. and what is going to come down to in the end is they say they don't want it to be failing -- ok, the republicans don't, but yet the democrats are saying they are trying to restrict this now so nobody can be too big to fail. and what we will end up is these big companies are going to get their money back, they will all buy into their way and they will -- obviously what we are looking at, where we were before. then
off the carolina coast, but off the virginia coast, the delaware coast, the jersey shore, up past massachusetts. you could have power outages that could be unbelievable. many places you could have up to millions of people without power. and speaking of the winds that could provide the power outages, wind gusts expected, possibly as we get to the evening hours, an 80-mile-per-hour gusts or stronger. waves 25 to 30 feet and storm surge, two to three feet. we talk about how rough it could be up and down the shore. already we're getting live information coming in. buoy data, quickly coming in. let's see, wind speeds there in the water of 22 miles per hour. some of the wave heights have been pretty significant. some up to 29 feet in fact. then what we're going to be seeing as we make our way through the rest of the afternoon, evening. as some of this really begins to intensify, the farther north the storm goes, the more intense the winds are going to be felt, eventually off the delmarva peninsula. some people in charlotte, you're not going to feel much. but over towards raleigh and you
: richmond, virginia, 35 years old. go ahead. go ahead. caller: yes . i am 35 and i work with -- i have been voting since clinton, i think, came in. i think that young people are not as informed as they used the. -- as they used to be. even older than i am, there were civics.in school about si guest: civics education in our schools has been systematically cut over the last 30 years. but that is not so you can blame young people about. that is an issue of where we investing resources, where are we investing in the young people? we have a program called democracy class that is available to teachers around the country, if they want a one- classroom curriculum. it should be significantly more than that. but young people are savvy. they are paying attention. we see they are following the news closely than they have in many years. i think that is what is causing some of the cynicism. they are starting to pay attention. they see that their interests are being cut by others or by corporate or special interests at times. they are savvy right now, especially with the internet, to actually find out inf

undercut his credibility host: virginia beach, mark, independent line. caller: i am starting to get involved in politics and things like that i am finding it hard to comprehend because you're saying you cannot talk reveal private investments that you are getting of millions and millions of dollars, but again, you owe so much money and [unintelligible] and the federal government goes and punishes because they've made their money probably and kept it to themselves. where are you getting all of this money from? host: michael, we've got your point. let me show the viewers the headline in "usa today." ehab line is that mid debt -- midterm campaign war chests are crammed. guest: we were looking at a billion dollars election cycle back in march and that was kind of a trajectory of spending in the elections of a last several cycles, not taking into account the fact that the recent decision could unleash a far more money in the election cycle. we were looking at a baseline spending, which would still be 30% above the previous midterm with the success by the candidates and these interest grou
or even the average. those four bills include gaining a river in virginia, naming a courthouse, renaming a post office, and bringing some federal dollars back to the bay area after the earthquake. it is all well and good for senator boxer to continue to miss characterize my record. it was she who voted for the wall street built out. is she who had taken many contributions from wall street executives. i would remind her that when you lead a business, whether it is a nine-person business or wanted 50,000 people, you sometimes have to make the agonizing choice to list some jobs to save more. what enrages people in california is that they see people making those tough choices absolutely every day. >> time is up. >> our next of your question is for carly fiorina. it comes from a pencil and a republican. mr. watson is an entire -- retired employee from hewlett- packard and he has a question regarding the alabama sourcing of jobs. >> will you were at hewlett- packard, you send thousands of jobs offshore. you coined the phrase -- also, in a keynote speech into thousand four, -- into 2004, that t
. the old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs like this little one, they're closing a big plant in virginia, 200 jobs, $30 an hour jobs. they're going to china. 2007, the democrat congress says we've got to save energy and save the planet. global warming is coming. so we've got to get rid of those old incandescent light bulbs and go to the next compact fluorescent lights, etc., etc., they are made in china. now you're seeing the results of it. >> those crazy little pigtail lights, the cfl's they want you to buy at home depot and stuff like that. we've heard such a big push from the manufacturers. you got to use these because they're good for the environment. what's ironic, stuart, is the fact that u.s. scientists invented the cfl light and now what we've done is we've exported all the jobs to china! >> yes, these 200 jobs go straight to china. now, the president -- >> used to be a lot more. remember back in the days when the united states of america used to make stuff! now we don't make anything. >> right. manufacturing jobs down 40% since 1979. jobs like this one. now, the president is go
, new mexico and then from here, the president will travel to richmond, virginia, aides say the president likes going to different parts of the country, having conversations with voters to talk about how they were affected by the economic down turn and to try to make the case for what he has done to try to help the economy. last night the president was in madison, wisconsin at the university of wisconsin trying to energize the youth vote which was obviously quite critical to his election two years ago. here is a sample of his message in tone. >> i know sometimes it feels a long way from the hope and excitement that we felt on election day or the day of the inauguration, but i've got to say, we always knew this was going to take time. we always knew this was going to be hard. i said it was going to be hard. remember? >> so the president today hosting a couple of backyard discussions, will be here and if there are any curve balls thrown his way, we'll be on top of things. back to you. >> gretchen: mike, thank you very much. let's head to steve. >> steve: thanks. a story we've
to play an important role. host: arlington, virginia. you are next. republican line. caller: in regards to the democratic transition of iraq. analysis in that region and pretty much around the world, went to callahan governments make the initial transition from being a -- when totalitarian governments make the transition to oth types of role, a democratic state, pretty much inially the state starts off as a weak democracy, a we state, pretty much transitioning as they adopt more of their ethnic and cultural the values in their constitution. part of my question is, with regard to the development of the iraqi constitutn -- host: we lost him. guest: we lost him, but if i could ck up on what he was saying, i think you are right to say that it takes time in the process of democratic development for governments to take on board itself the practices of democracy and for the public to incorporate democracy into their own setf cultural values. iraq is certainly in that prospect. one day i saw the -- in iraq that i thought was pretty remarkable is the basic idea of democracy, the basic idea of el
